To know the external Training Load (eTL) of the tasks which students will develop during sports is essential for the optimization of learning. The aim of this study was to analyze, depending on the parts of session and the means of teaching, the eTL of the tasks designed by pre-service teachers for the teaching of school basketball. A total of 283 tasks designed by six pre-service teachers were categorized through the Integral System for Training Tasks Analysis (SIATE). The quantification of eTL of the tasks was obtained through six variables: degree of opposition, density of the task, percentage of simultaneous performers, competitive load, game area and cognitive involvement. Descriptive and inferential analysis were performed through TCR and Kruskal-Wallis H test, establishing the size of the effect through Cohen’s d. Pre-service teachers plan with levels of eTL lower than those required in the animation part and in the fundamental part, depending on these levels of the organizational parameters selected during the design of the tasks. The mean of teaching influences the quantification of eTL.
